So you want to be a writer…

Well, you’ve come to the right place. We publish novels, novellas, and collections in a variety of genres, though we focus on science fiction, fantasy, steampunk, and horror. Our goal is to publish three different things each month; novels, collections, magazines, etc. We also are always on the lookout for things to publish electronically throughout the year.

If these aren’t quite to your style, or if you’re looking for something different, we have numerous periodicals you can submit short stories, poetry, and art to as well as a few anthologies for the same things. The information for submitting to those particular books is straightforward and can be found on their respective pages.

Publishing Details

Unless otherwise stated, these publications are formatted in trade paperback perfect bound. Novels start at 65,000 words. Novellas can range from 35,000 to 60,000 words. Story collection lengths should be at least 35,000 words while poetry collection lengths need to be at least 40 pages.

Although we will consider reprints, original stories will receive the highest priority.

The Flavors We Crave

As stated previously we do publish all kinds of different books and novels but we’re focusing on horror, fantasy, science fiction, and steampunk. These are the things we think are not only the most popular genres of books, but the most fun to write, edit, and read. To help you understand what we mean by these terms and better help you understand what we’re looking for we have some tips below on what we think these genres are.

Horror

Fantasy

Science Fiction

Steampunk

Payment for novels is 20% of actual print sales and, if also released as an e-book, 50% of actual e-book sales; contributors may also purchase unlimited quantities of their work at 30% off the cover price.

Payment for novellas and collections is $15.00 plus 10% of actual print sales and, if also released as an e-book, 50% of actual e-book sales; contributors may also purchase unlimited quantities of their work at 30% off the cover price.

How to Submit

Send your submissions to [email protected].

NOVELS

Please do not submit your novel directly. First, send a query letter with a synopsis of approximately 700-1000 words telling us what the story is about. Based on the information in the query letter, we will then decide whether to ask for the manuscript. If we want to see it, we will tell you how to submit it.

NOVELLAS

Please do not submit your novella directly. Send a query letter of approximately 500 words telling us what the story is about. Also send an rtf document containing the first four pages of your novella. Based on the query letter and those first four pages, we will then decide whether to ask for the manuscript. If we want to see it, we will issue you further instructions.

COLLECTIONS

Again, please do not submit your collection – stories or poetry – directly. Send a query letter of approximately 500 words that describe the general aspects of the collection. Also send an rtf document that includes the first two pages of three different stories, or four sample poems, as appropriate. If we decide we want to see the full manuscript, we will ask for it.

If you have any further questions, feel free to send them to [email protected].
